president obama sees it a bit differently. >> some of what i have heard coming out of wisconsin, where you are just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally, seems like more of an assault on unions. and i think it's very important for us to understand that public employee, they are our neighbors. they are our friends. >> bill: if state workers will not give back some of their benefits, there is no solution to the fiscal crisis anywhere. you can't raise taxes anymore. the folks are tapped out. live on long island elderly people are selling their homes because they can't sell the high tax rate. perhaps over a few years that way they could look for other jobs in the private sector if they don't believe they are being compensated fairly in the public arena. i believe that would be fair. class warfare is about to break out in america. union benefits are strangling not only state budgets but also the private economy. yes, workers do need protection. they need some kind of security in the marketplace. but, the cold truth is, that federal and state workers have reach

, the architect? the white house, barack obama is engineering the birther stuff because it makes republicans look silly. it's republicans who are afraid to mess with the birthers. every time i talk to one, they're afraid to say it's nonsense. we begin with the wild sensation out in washington. for the second straight day, madison skpool teachers and other public employees have called in to sick or done some other kind of job action. meanwhile, all 14 of the democratic state senators have blocked passage of the anti-union bill by simply apparently splitting from the state. they're out of the state. the scene in wisconsin appears to be a long-awaited confrontation between republican state houses and the power of democratic-leaning public employee unions. let's turn to the union director for the united steelworkers. also joining us by phone sf glenn grotham. michael bolton, sir, thank you for joining us from the steelworkers. thank you. michael bolten, sir, thank you for joining us. if you have to explain this to somebody from norway or not out there, what's this about? >> this is a so-called budget
